5x10 LogoDuring the first ten weeks of college you will begin to develop routines, create new social connections and establish your place at Lehigh. We will expose you to the multitude of opportunities that exist on campus, and encourage you to reflect on those opportunities to maximize your Lehigh experience.

The 5x10, which reads as the five by ten, is a programming series open to all Lehigh students with a specific focus on first-year students and their connection to Lehigh. All first-year students are expected to attend five programs during the first ten weeks of the semester in at least three of the Five Foundations of Student Success in bLUeprint. (They could attend one program or event that addresses each of the Five Foundations). Students will have a wide variety of programs to help them make their selections.

Check Banner to verify which 5x10 programs you have attended. Check out this PDF for instructions on where to find your completed 5x10 programs.
